Below you can see examples of the looks we have created in the Cinematic category. This is a great way to quickly add some of the more popular cinematic movie looks to your footage.
One of the exciting features included with Spectrum is the Tool Kit. It comes with some essential and fun tools to enhance your developing looks: Widescreen, 3 types of Tilt-Shift effects, Levels, Sharpen, Light Bits, and Diffusion…something we haven’t seen much for FCPX.
Made Easy for FCPX
Once you have installed Spectrum, open Final Cut Pro X and navigate to the Effects tab. There you will see the 80 different tools you can use with Spectrum. Simply select your clip, then hover over each effect to preview it. Drag and drop a desired effect onto your footage.
Get Creative with Control
Spectrum has a huge array of tools and even though we have had some incredibly positive feedback from some professional colorists, Spectrum can be a final grade tool or simply a starting point.
Each tool and color grade in Spectrum has a ton of control. You can customize just one color grade preset in so many ways. Not only that, but experiment with combining a couple or several Spectrum tools to get something even more unique.
